Annapurna Circuit Trekking


Regarded as one of the best trekking routes in Nepal, Annapurna Circuit Trekking amazes you every single moment with its extraordinary landscape and amazing views of the Himalayas. Influenced by the Tibetan culture Annapurna Circuit Trek never fails to offer you the warm hospitality of the Nepalese people. With huge diversity in its flora and fauna this two week long journey is physically demanding as we cross the Thorung La Pass (5,416m) one of the highest trekking pass in Nepal. The trek begins following the Marshyangdi river valley in the Manang District and ends in Mustang, another mesmerizing district with unique geographical conditions from where we follow the Kali Gandaki river valley towards Tatopani and upto Ghorepani to catch awe-inspiring sunrise before returning back to the city.

Annapurna Circuit Trekking begins from Kathmandu from where we get on a Car towards Besisahar, usually the starting point of the trek. From Besisahar we continue driving to Chamje (By Local Jeep) from where we now officially begin our trekking. Following the Marshyandi River the trail gradually climbs in altitude passing villages of Pisang, Bragha before reaching Manang. After Manang we continue trek to Tilicho Lake. While trekking you will see the change in vegetation as we go higher. The trees become shorter and the greenery slowly starts to disappear leaving you with rocky terrains surrounded by gigantic Himalayas. We finally cross Thorung La Pass from where we have a long descend to Muktinath, a religious temple for Hindu people where it is believed that taking bath here washes away all your sins.

Spending a night in Muktinath we again drive on a jeep to Tatopani from where we initiate the final portion of our trekking towards Ghorepani, a village inhabited mostly by Poon and Magar community of people. Poonhill is one regarded as one of the best point for the sunrise as numerous mountains and peaks offer you the unforgettable views as the rays of the sun begin to strike these giants. The trail then is all downhill towards tikhedhunga via Ulleri and Banthanti from where we again hop in a Jeep to Pokhara
